happening now, all eyes are on michigan just ahead of tomorrow's critical primaries. a lot at stake for both parties the democratic side, voters angry over the war in gaza are trying to send a message to president biden. does the uncommitted vote pose a threat to his campaign? and on the republican side, nikki haley is vowing to soldier on after saturday's blowout loss to donald trump in her home state of south carolina as a major conservative governor network pulls. also tonight, cnn speaks one-on-one with ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy marks two years of war with russia why he says millions will die if the us cuts off military aid welcome to our
3:02 pm
viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer, a urine. the situation room first up tonight president biden's big test in michigan, where a primary challenge threatens to embarrass the president and exposed deep divides among his democratic base over the war in gaza. this as president biden just spoke out on the israel-hamas conflict saying he's hopefully temporary, temporary he cease fire will be reached by next monday. >> cnn's jeff zeleny has more on >> the president's primary challenge and our mj lee is over at the white house with details on president biden's latest remarks about the war. let's go to mj first, jake, president biden made the comments while visiting an ice cream shop in new york just moments ago that's right, wolf, the president is up in new york spending the day there to do some fundraising and for a taping of seth meyers. and he was just asked by a reporter
3:03 pm
when he was visiting an ice cream store when a temporary ceasefire in the israel hamas war might start. and his response, you some pretty specific language on the timing take a listen >> when you think that start >> well, i hope by the beginning of the weekend, i mean the end of the weekend at least my my my nash security adviser tells me that we're close. we're close to not done yet. my hope is by next monday, we'll have a ceasefire so the president wolf is clearly being advised by his national security team, who has been working around >> the clock on this issue, that things are close, though as we just heard him say, they're not quite there yet. you know, my colleagues and i have been reporting that the deadline, but us officials all along with the other those shaders that are involved, that they are working towards is by ramadan. this is when they would like to have that next temporary pause in fighting to
3:04 pm
begin by. and that is so critical because this is when the israeli government has said that the israeli forces would go into rafah in southern gaza. if by that time a deal isn't struck, and that is something that us officials are very much set on trying to avoid because the thinking there is that if that does happen, then all bets are off and they wouldn't exactly know when the opportunity next might be for this kind of temporary pause in the fighting to happen. and it would be also, of course, incorrect but it really significant because it would be the first pause in the fighting since that seven-day truce we saw back in end of november when of course, a number of hostages ended up coming out. so clearly, wolf, we are seeing a president who appears to have reason for optimism that a ceasefire could begin in just a matter of days. wolf let me get jeff into this conversation. geoff, there are concerns as we all know about tomorrow's democratic primary in michigan, where what's called the uncommitted movement has been gaining momentum. what is the
3:05 pm
uncommitted movement? explain to our viewers, well, certainly the white house is keeping a very close eye on the michigan primary, not because of a primary challenger but because of a policy position, specifically, what mj was just talking about there, the president's handling of israel's war in gaza. but there is this uncommitted movement at grassroots movement called listen to michigan, where they are urging voters in the primary tomorrow to cast their ballot for uncommitted, simply write in uncommitted on the ballot to check that off in instead of joe biden to send a message, a protest vote, if you will, for the president and the administration's handling on this, they've been calling for a full cease-fire for months and months. it is very much unclear if the president's remarks there and they hope of a ceasefire by next week, we'll do anything to allay some of those concerns. never mind the images we're seeing being there the president being asked this by holding an ice cream cone during a stop in new york city. but beyond that, there certainly is this grassroots movement here, urging voters in her is of course, a substantial
3:06 pm
population of arab americans and muslim americans in michigan, right outside detroit. so the white house certainly keeping an eye on the primary tomorrow in michigan, wolf and jeff far this could have big implications potentially for the biden campaign in the general election. that's coming up this year. >> it definitely could. and here is why wolf though you'll remember the margins in michigan, always so important the road to the white house goes directly through michigan. but let's look back at those numbers in 2016, donald trump one michigan by 10,000 votes. four years later in 2020, president biden carried it by 154,000 votes. however, the number of muslim american voters, of course, is the larger influence of arab american voters in michigan is about 145,000 votes. that's based on the emgage, a political action group. there the margins there are so important. we of course do not know how all people will vote. we do not know what the situation will be in november, but that's why this is so precarious and again, voters in
3:07 pm
michigan trying to send a message tomorrow in the primary to vote uncommitted wolf. we're told 1 million people have already voted in michigan early. and of course many more but to vote tomorrow in this key primary election, we shall see what happens. jeff zeleny, mj lee, to both of you. thank you very much. joining us now democratic congressman jim clyber, and he's a top ally of president biden. earnings are co-chair of his reelection campaign, congressman. thank you so much for joining us as you know, president biden appears optimistic about but ceasefire beginning next week, early next week as part of a hostage deal. but the uncommitted movement in michigan is is clear. they want a permanent ceasefire, a total end to israel's war. take a listen to how congresswoman rashida tlaib put it. listen to this president biden's risking another trump term over his support for the most right-wing government. most extremist government in the history of israel. there is nothing humanitarian about temporary pause in this death and
3:08 pm
destruction. we need a permanent ceasefire. nothing else is not enough congressman, how do you respond to at the democratic congresswoman? >> well, thank you very much. heavier. >> we all want it >> permanent ceasefire but the fact that the matter is we have to go through a process. i do believe that all of us are aware that joe biden, as all americans and israelis were really caught off guard with this raid that took place. it turned into a massacre and b know that the feelings are very high on both ends of the spectrum. and joe biden, as the record on this issue, he is saying that maybe by next monday, we will have a temporary ceasefire, but that will lead hopefully to a permanent cease fire. so the journey of 1,000 miles? yes. but a single-step let's take
3:09 pm
the steps that are necessary. if it's walking, you do a temporary now and permanent later. let's take those steps. so i'm not believe that we ought to be holding out for the preference when you got a good solution on the table >> as they say in congress all the time, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. are you concerned, congressman that president biden's handling of this war potentially could cost him michigan in november yes, i am concerned about that, but there's not just michigan. i hear from people in my congressional district and in my home state of south carolina, this is an issue that is a very very consequential to a lot of people and it is to me as well. i've had meetings with president biden on this issue that we've talked about. it and i believe he is doing the proper thing, tried to get to a
3:10 pm
resolution of it. i would like to see it done about tomorrow morning, but we all know that that's not possible. we have to work with our allies. we have to work with the hostages. in mind. we can do a lot of things that could endanger the hostages. and let's just be sure that we don't yeah. >> good point. >> senior biden >> administration officials, congressman, as you know, they met with some arab and muslim leaders in michigan earlier this month. was it a mistake though, for president biden not to talk to community leaders himself. >> well, i think we get to that. he had to staff up there and there have these meetings. they can determine what it is that can be done. and wow, how the prisoners should be brought into the issue. i do believe it when things in an incremental away, i do not believe that
3:11 pm
that's necessarily a bad way. it go and understanding of what it is that he can come to them with really does have the meeting lots of stake right now, congressman jim clyburn. thank you so much for joining us. i want to get some more analysis right now from cnn, political commentators ashley allison and alice stewart and ashley. let me start with you these uncommitted, the uncommitted movement as it's called in michigan right now, what's your assessment? >> well, i think it is a community of people that are hurting right now. they may have family members that are living in gaza. they may have lost family members that are living in gaza, or they may be compassionate to the cause. i think one of the beautiful things about democracy is that your vote is your opportunity to express how you feel about issues. and so as a democratic party that has a big tent coalition, we want to see those expressions. now your job as a candidate is to then go and
3:12 pm
move those individuals if they're not with you to where they become an a from uncommitted to commit it. and so i think tomorrow's effort is i'm committed folks that are you going to use tomorrow's that effort to make a showing for a policy decision that they would like the biden administration to take, and then the campaign and the biden administration will have to assess accordingly so that they can engage. >> let me read to you, alice, some of the uncommitted movements platform. and this is a quote by must earn our vote through a dramatic change in policy. president biden has been the successful candidate in the past by representing a broad coalition. but right now he's not representing the vast majority of democrats who want a ceasefire and an end to his funding of israel's war in gaza. >> i happen to view this as not exactly a profile encouraged when you're asking democrats to render a vote of uncommitted in a primary if they really want to send a message to president biden and his
3:13 pm
policies do this in a general election that would really send the message. look, you have to remember congresswoman to leave is the one who advocated for from the river to the sea, annihilating israel off the face of the map that is where she is coming from. and she also said, president biden, we will send you a message in 2024 doing this in the primary when we i'll know that president biden is going to be the nominee for the democratic party in the primary, doesn't really send the message that you're really advocating for this position. if you're not going to do it in a general election, go ahead and i don't agree with it. >> we have a process and we have primaries and we want people to engage in every step of the process after tomorrow if we will see what happens, i hope that individuals can get to a place where after the michigan primary will have to see what has happening in november, but they get to a place where they get to president biden but they're not there yet. they're using this as a power, as an organizing tool and i don't think people
3:14 pm
should be disregarded. every vote should matter. and what that voice behind every vote. you don't have to agree with it, but that's the beauty of democracy. and that's why this process is so important, because the reality is, is that if they don't get to a point where the biden campaign can engage this community so that they can win a november. our democracy is at stake because the alternative is is donald trump, and he doesn't want their voice to be heard and he's already been very clear on that. and his first term with the muslim ban, and he will be even more egregious with draconian policies in four more years. >> i want you to listen to michigan governor gretchen whitmer's appeal to voters right now at this sensitive moment, listen to this it's important not to lose sight of the fact that any vote that's not cast for joe biden supports a second trump >> term, a second trump term would be devastating, not just on fundamental rights, not just on our democracy here at home, but also when it comes to foreign policy, this was a man who promoted a muslim ban, ban but as you know, some of these
3:15 pm
voters out in michigan, arab americans and muslim americans, some of them have lost family members in gaza. and the result, as a result of the israeli strikes. and it begins very, very personal for them in dealing with this right now. absolutely. and she's the governor is not alone. we're seeing michigan you can congressmen who are women and men who are saying president biden, you need to get ride on this issue because of the arab muslim community in michigan who have been so outspoken and boko on this but the reality also is it's not just this issue that is resonating and driving people away from president biden is the economy does immigration. it is safety. and obviously there's the issue that has really taken front and center in many democratic voters is his age and his ability in the stamina to do the job. so michigan leaders are advocating to the biden administration, you need to take action. you need to do it soon. you're lots at stake in michigan right now. i'll just say that it's not an arab
3:16 pm
american or muslim american issue. it's an issue that i care about. it's an issue that most people care about in the democratic party. and i think is just a question up. where will the provided administration and on this and can they convince their voters to show up at november, see what's happening? let's hope there is at least the temporary ceasefire in the think days that would be important. >> and the hostages get back. >> i'm of course, the hostages come home as well. all right, guys. thank you very, very much. just ahead, >> nikki, haley's path to the gop nomination getting more difficult after a stinging loss in south carolina at the top financial backer, backing out also coming up, what ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy is telling cnn about what another donald trump presidency would mean for his war-torn country and the future of global democracy erin burnett outfront tonight at seven on cnn >> this year, i got serious

3:22 pm
that he is on the verge of becoming the republican nominee for president the last time i interviewed him, he refused to say if he wanted ukraine or russia to win this war. are you prepared for him to be reelected? >> the decision who will be the president? decision of your society. >> but one moment >> i hope it's not, i >> hope it will not be so. but this way, but but anyway, if donald trump doesn't, doesn't know who he will support ukraine or russia i think that's he will have challenges with us society because to support russia it means be against americans i'm pretty blunt assessment there wolf, but also he's dealing with this
3:23 pm
issue right now with house speaker mike johnson, who is really the republican that has >> ukraine's fate in his hands as is. there's a question over whether he's going to bring ukraine aid for a vote. i should note there's a meeting at the white house tomorrow with president biden speaker johnson, the other congressional leaders there's like chuck schumer and hakeim, jeffrey's, they're talking about funding the government. and this very issue. and one thing that i was so struck by is how blunt president zelenskyy was and what that is going to mean for ukraine if there is no new us aid, he said that millions of people will die. they will not have any new successes on the battlefield. maybe they can defend and hold the line fine, but no new successes. and it was just an incredibly bleak assessment of what is a very real and potential prospect wolf? yes, very >> bleak indeed, kaitlan collins. thank you very much for the terrific work or we're all gonna be watching your full interview with president zelenskyy later tonight on your show, the source with kaitlan collins, that air is 09:00 p.m. eastern later tonight. meanwhile, two of alexey
3:24 pm
navalny's aides say vladimir putin was offered a potential prisoner exchange which would have included the incarcerated russian opposition leader before he died. cnn's chief global affairs correspondent, matthew chance, is joining us live from moscow. right now. some matthew what can you tell us >> well, wolf, for months, there's been rumors that alexey navalny, the late russian opposition leader was being discussed as a possible candidate for a prison prisoner swap. but a swap that's being talked about between the russians and the united states for some time now, because the us wants to get us citizens are in russian prisons back home. people like evan gershkovich, the wall street journal reporter, and paul whelan, a former us marine, who's in prison on spying or for spying in russia or something, of course that he denies in exchange the russians want this fsb hitman, who's serving a life sentence in germany for
3:25 pm
killing a chechen dissident vadim krasikov is his name, but it's only today that navalny's team have come out publicly and said, yes, indeed, navalny was part of those negotiations and could have been involved in a prisoner swap. in fact, they say the gaucher patients to release navalny as part of that swap were in the final stage the night before he was pronounced dead in his arctic penal colony. and so obviously that's something that they say is related. what they say is that putin the russian president, couldn't face the fact couldn't face the idea of swapping navalny. and so he took that negotiating chip, chip and that that's their words off the table the kremlin, we should say, have categorically denied any involvement in alexey navalny's death. and i've spoken to myself earlier today and they've said they had no knowledge of any kind of a deal, but one western official has told cnn that talks about
3:26 pm
navalny being swapped had got underway. other they were in an early stage, 11 other small update wolf, navalny's funeral, expected to be held at the end of the week? that could be a potential flashpoint back to you there we will be watching. i'm chance in moscow. thank you very much coming up. nikki haley insists the race for the gop nomination is not over two days after a crushing defeat in your home state of south carolina key supporter of her campaign, governor chris sununu. we are standing by live. we will discuss the whole story with anderson cooper, sunday at eight on cnn >> if you're living with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis for active psoriatic arthritis symptoms can sometimes take you out of the moment now, they're sky rosie >> so you can show >> off with clear skin and show it off with sky rizzi. you

3:31 pm
haley is trying to bounce back from a blowout republican primary loss to donald trump in her home state of south carolina cnn's eva mckend is on the trail for us in grand rapids, michigan. how is nikki haley making her case where you are in michigan, eva will she is continuing to hone in on this electability argument, arguing that though former >> president donald trump has won all of these early states, he hasn't done so by a mandate, so he's not picking up these states above 90%. and what she argues is that, that really illustrates that he still has vulnerabilities with independent voters, with moderate voters. and these are the voters that she argues that republicans will need in the general election. but what still not clear is what state she can actually win. can she win here in michigan tomorrow? can she win in any of the super tuesday contests? take a listen to what she told me when i put that question to her today. which state can you tell us
3:32 pm
that you can definitively win? >> we have 21 states and territories that are getting ready to happen. why don't we wait and see what happens? >> we don't have to have a >> crystal ball and say, this is going to happen or that's going to happen. we don't live in russia. we don't anoint kings. we have elections, let people vote. but can you name a single state? you can win, name that 70% of americans don't want donald trump or joe biden so haley, showing no signs of slowing down. she's already campaigning tonight in minnesota, has left michigan and then she's got ten fundraisers in the days ahead. >> super tuesday coming up. what i'm march 5, eva. thank you very, very much joining us now. a key nikki haley supporter, new hampshire's republican governor, chris sununu, governor, thank you so much for joining us. nikki haley. what about what, 40% of the vote in south carolina and in your state of new hampshire as well. but what is the path for her? her to actually start getting a majority of the votes
3:33 pm
of these upcoming primaries >> well, again, you take each state separately. you're looking at super tuesday. there's 16, 18 states there. when you include michigan in the mix, when you have the fact that i think nikki said it said it very well. there is not a mandate here when when you have four for president trump, the incumbent president, right? the standard bearer of the party, and 40, 45% in the early state and say, we don't want them, we want to change things out that's that's that's a weakness. and i think when nikki talks about the electability as she goes into these states, a lot of which they campaigns are really just picking up the next ten days will be very intense explain to folks in a state like michigan boy, having trump on the ballot, kept losing races from michigan republicans. they kept losing house seats in the senate seats. it put the governorship at, at, at risk. we couldn't win the governorship when we probably should have. so again electability matters a lot to a lot of these other states. and when when nikki haley's on the top of the ticket all the polls show she crushes biden, she wins all those seats. she
3:34 pm
brings the republican party back. she can actually fulfill on tsi that trump talks about. but has never truly been able to fulfill for the party. so i think again, this is just starting she's raising money. a lot of folks wanted to stay in. she has the resources and it's going to be quite a mix. come super tuesday, as you know, governor here are the republican national committee of the rnc is likely to soon be led by two trump hand-picked candidates, including his daughter-in-law, lara trump. do you have any concerns, governor, that your party will play favorites upcoming in these upcoming primary contests? >> but it's not just that i have concerns about the rnc playing favorites. the rnc has less cash on hand than it, than it really ever has before. and now you're bringing in folks that really don't have experience raising money. donald trump is shown a challenge in raising money. a lot of the big money donors will stay away from him. they won't give to the rnc, hopefully that at least give to the case candidates, but they're going to stay away from donald trump because the money that goes to the rnc and trump
3:35 pm
ends up going to lawsuits and legal fees, right? think of all these individuals and said, so new york city. so when when nikki comes to the table, all that goes away, that's another great argument to make that again, to read, not just restructure the party, but give the party more confidence give its standard bearers, give the voters, give the constituents of the republican party a lot more confidence that what we want to see done can actually get done. you can fundraise, we can win these seats again, trump has shown year after year after year of losing. we lost in 18, we lost in 20, should have been a big red wave it's been 22 with him in his candidates, in his messaging, we got killed. we should we should have done so much better. so again, all these things add up to why should we keep doing and ask the party to keep doing the exact same thing when it leads to real negative results with donald trump on top of the ticket, donald trump is arguing that nikki haley, his words is hurting the party by staying in the race. haley says, president biden is more dangerous than trump if she
3:36 pm
believes that governor ishi hurting trump's chances of beating president biden by staying in this race? >> of course, that's silly. you think the democrats don't have all the arguments against donald trump in the general election. i do think there's some cat being led out of the bag here. of course not know. look, i anyone who's give trump credit, he's one of the first three states. anyone in that position is going to say, of course everyone should just get out and the crowds you just be handed to me the party pretty she just annoyed me. he effectively tried to do that with the resolution about a month ago at the rnc until they realized what a bad idea that wasn't. they finally pushed back on it. so he just wants to be anointed. he didn't want to earn it but again, you have to that's what the primary process is. four. >> that's why he should have gone on a debate stage, going to debates, having arguments, doing this that actually made takes you a better candidate. trump has no interest in doing that. trump's trying to save himself. nikki haley is trying to save this country, and that's a fundamental difference between these two seems to be a huge difference. governor chris sununu. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you

3:41 pm
cardiologist recommended form of coke uten kunal, the brand i trust >> and jeremy diamond in tel aviv. and this is cnn >> prosecutors in manhattan are asking the judge overseeing donald trump's hush money trial to place a gag order on the former president, citing trump's quote, inflammatory from marx and threats received by the district attorney's office. our senior crime and justice reporter, katelyn polantz, has details for us. kaitlan, tell us about the gag order prosecutors now want well, wolf, the manhattan district attorney's office is getting ready for trial in just for weeks against donald trump in this hush money case. and they want to make sure that that process is protected. so they're going to the judge now to put in place some of the
3:42 pm
provisions for the trial. and one of the things they're asking for is a gag order to be placed on the former president. now, he has gag orders in two other pieces already that he is largely abided by in recent weeks. and so they're asking in this case because of trump's long history of talking about jurors, talking about the prosecutors who bring cases against him, talking about court staff, and the threats that have resulted from the amount that he talks about. all of those people they want to gag order. so what they write in a filing to the judge defendant, that's donald trump, has a long history of making public and inflammatory remarks about the participants in various judicial proceedings against him including jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and court staff. those remarks as well as the inevitable reactions they incite from defendants, followers and allies pose a significant and imminent threat to the orderly administration of this criminal proceeding. now they are not asking for
3:43 pm
donald trump to be barred from speaking about the manhattan district attorney alvin bragg himself. but they do want to make sure that the harassment of court staff, as well as people in the prosecutor's office, family members, that that wouldn't take place. they cite hundreds of threats that have come in an exponential amount since 2022 when there was just one threat to the da's office. now, there's been white powder received by the da's office this in manhattan in 2023. >> and >> many, many threats to them also, they obviously have concerns about juror safety as trump's words clearly have serious and potentially dangerous consequences. katelyn polantz, stay with us. i also want to bring in cnn legal analyst, carrie cordero. carrie, how strong is the prosecutor's case for this? gag order that they're seeking. his flouted gag orders in the past is there any reason to think this would actually constrain him >> well, i think that they have
3:44 pm
a compelling case based on the history that kaitlan explained, including the threats that this office, in particular clare, has received. but i do wonder whether the court will implement a gag order this early in the process. in other words, i do wonder whether the court will give the former president maybe some verbal instructions of how he supposed to comport himself wait for him to be out of line with those particular prescriptions and then move to the gag order. in other words, the gag order would be a step in the process, but maybe not the first one. so i am curious to see how the timing of the court's decisions play out. >> kaitlan, i understand you have some new reporting about how the trump team wants to play his two federal cases off one another. tell us about that, right? >> well, for that case, we were just talking about in
3:45 pm
manhattan, the da's case, the hush money case. that's going to go to trial at the end of march and block out most of his calendar into may as the criminal defendants. so no other trials at that time, but there are two federal cases that theoretically could go to trial before the election. and donald trump does not want tha' going to try and do is on friday, his team, according to sources, i've spoken with, is going to ask judge aileen cannon in florida, the judge overseeing his classified documents, criminal case, they're going to ask her to move the trial for him in that case into july, so he's not gonna be able to do another trial after the hush money case until that theoretically heads to trial. but then their hope and they hope that there would be you need to move that trial back even further, blocking out, not just the classified documents case from going to trial before the election, but also elbowing out the ability of the federal court in dc to
3:46 pm
hold his trial for 2020 election allegations. so that is the plan. if we see at work that's another thing entirely >> and carry a given everything we know about these cases, at least so far, do you expect one of these two federal cases to actually make it to trial? this year? >> that's a really hard call, wolf because there's a couple of different things at play in each of the cases and they're not the same thing. so the mar-a-lago classified documents case has classified information which is part of it that it plays into the delay in the discovery process because it involves national security for any information that alone aside from the fact that it pertains to the former president, that alone could delay it up to the summer or even past the election time. and then of course the district of columbia case jack smith's case, related to 2020. that case depends ends a lot on
3:47 pm
whether or not the supreme court decides to take up the issue of immunity. so i think it's really nearly impossible at this point to predict when these cases are going to take place. in particular, until we get that immunity decision in a row, waiting for that supreme court immunity decision to come down lower court appellate courts protests that trump does not have immunity. we'll see what the us supreme court decides to both of you. thank you very, very much coming up. why georgia's republican governors now demanding answers from the white house over the killing of a nursing student in his state vegas. >> the story of sin city. sunday at ten on cnn hey, you've seen this was the main one. you're telling me. you can get directtv, vogue good stuff and you don't need a satellite dish all, i used to love doing my business on those
